2018 repress. Lilith present a reissue of Brainticket's Cottonwoodhill, originally released in 1971. Being as LSD was first developed in a laboratory in Basel, it is perhaps no coincidence that one of the most far-out albums of all time was made by this Swiss band -- no small feat, given the competition! Brainticket's 1971 debut, Cottonwoodhill, begins normally enough with two fine psychedelic/krautrock-influenced tracks, but the remainder of the album plays like an acid trip with a soundtrack, dominated by Joël Vandroogenbroeck's endless droning organ, a variety of musique concrète-type sound effects, and vocalist Dawn Muir's trippy vocals. The album, banned in several countries, even came with this self-imposed warning: "After Listening to this Record, your friends may not know you anymore. Only listen to this once a day, or your brain might be destroyed!" Gatefold sleeve; Includes CD.
